This didn't turn out like I thought they would. They came out as hard and dense as a brick. The flavor was savory - not sweet, which is why I think the previous reviewer added coconut and frosting. I would not make them again - they were extremely dense and heavy and didn't taste good.
I made these muffins a few days ago. They smelled just wonderful baking! Now I followed the recipe just as printed so I was surprised at the first taste. I thought they were rather bland...lacking something! I took steps to make them more tongue-worthy. 1. I sliced them into 1/4 inch rounds. 2. I coated them with a chocolate frosting. 3. I toasted some shredded sweeten coconut and sprinkled on top. They were a big hit! My youngest DGD (4) kept telling anybody who would listen that "GrannyMa made special little cakes..just for me." Well, thank you Mary, for making me a hit with the family.
Very Good! I served the muffins with cinnamon butter. Yummy! Nice way to use up a few leftover sweet potatoes.
